Azerbaijan visa requirements for French citizens
Azerbaijan electronic visas are granted for tourism, short-term, and medical treatment purposes. The validity of e-Visa is within 03 months from the arrival date, allowing French nationals to enter once and remain in the country for up to 30 days.
Because there are just a few Azerbaijan e-Visa entry criteria for French residents to apply online, this online travel permit is relatively straightforward to get. They must, in particular, obey the following rules:
Having a valid French passport for at least 06 months from the date of arrival in Azerbaijan and paying the Azerbaijani e-Visa charge with a credit or debit card. This implies that tourists from France who hold a passport that is due to expire must renew it before applying for an e-Visa to Azerbaijan. Having a passport that expires in less than 6 months may cause complications when attempting to enter the country. Citizens with several passports should use the same one while filling out the online application and traveling to Azerbaijan.
Providing a valid email address to obtain the approved online visa and any other important correspondence is a must.
Aside from these requirements, French citizens must be prepared to submit digital copies of their passports and meet one of the Azerbaijani authorities' authorized travel objectives.
